Students will demonstrate the following preschool indicators: taking turns; actively engage in activities and interactions with teachers and peers; create two- and three-dimensional works of art while exploring color, line, shape, form, texture, and space; create more recognizable representations as eye-hand coordination and fine-motor skills develop; develop and refine fine-motor skills, associates many letters (consonants and vowels as ready) with their names and their most frequent sounds; use basic science terms; communicate with other children and adults to share observations, pursue questions, make predictions, and/or conclusions; recognize and name one-digit written numbers up to 10 with minimal prompting
I am a certified STEAM teacher with a passion for animals. I have a degree in zoology, have interned for zoo veterinarians, and have been on three African safaris!
Optional extension materials will be supplied each week
Materials will vary each week, but will include basic household items, such as: straws, glue, scissors, tape, baking soda & vinegar, soap, ice, cardboard tubes, etc.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Some materials will require cutting, which should be done with the assistance of a grown-up before class.
